Albion Employee Spotlight: Claire Dwyer
“Hire really good, smart people, and get out of their way.” – Brian Newsome, Albion Executive Vice President
You may remember this quote from our blog post: “The Untold Story of Albion.” In light of Brian’s ability to find and retain the industry’s top talent, I wanted to spotlight our incredible team here at Albion. Each month, we will virtually introduce you to a member of our team. I look forward to chatting with my teammates about their interest in the construction industry, hobbies outside of work, and more. In this week’s ‘Employee Spotlight’, we are introducing you to our Project Administrator, Claire Dwyer.
Claire recently joined us as our Project Administrator and has quickly learned the ropes of one of the most complex positions in the company. As Project Admin, Claire wears many hats. I asked Claire a few questions about working for Albion and life outside of Albion:
What made you interested in working for a general contractor?
I never knew I would be working in the construction industry. I graduated from Georgia Southern with a major in Fashion Merchandising- the furthest thing from construction. I became interested in working for Albion after reading a little bit more about the company and all of their accomplishments. I took it as a challenge to step outside of my comfort zone and get into something that I did not know a lot about!
Why do you like working at Albion?
Everyone is really helpful and friendly. Also, I’ve really enjoyed learning about all of the processes that it takes to build a building and complete a project.
What’s your favorite part of your job
I like that every day holds something different and that I’m constantly learning.
What’s the most challenging part of your job?
I’d say the most challenging part about my job is just learning all of the different processes that are used and making sure that we meet each deadline.
Outside of work….
Favorite sports team?
The Green Bay Packers
What is your favorite food?
This is hard! I like everything, but if I had to pick one thing to eat every day for the rest of my life, it would probably be tacos or something Mexican.
What is your favorite TV show?
Big Little Lies- can’t wait for season 2!
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Hang out with my dog, Brewer, make new recipes, online shop, and watch reality TV.
Thank you, Claire. We absolutely love having you on board!
